The Advanced Electronics Company (AEC), a Saudi Arabian Military Industries (SAMI) company, will participate in the IKTVA 2022 Forum and Exhibition to be organized by Saudi Aramco from 24-26 January 2022. Through such participation, AEC aims to develop the local manufacturing sector, enhance global competitiveness by supporting the diverse economic environment, and help build a prosperous future for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
CEO of AEC Eng. Ziad Al-Musallam indicated that AEC's participation is part of its endeavors to take advantage of the opportunities offered by this significant event in developing the local manufacturing sector, Internet of Things (IoT), and artificial intelligence, as well as contributing to raising the level of global competitiveness by supporting the economic environment and help to build a prosperous future for the Kingdom.
"AEC is very proud for having won IKTVA's 2020 Excellence Award in the category of "Best in Saudization" in the manufacturing sector. Winning this award is a recognition of AEC's efforts in supporting Saudi talents, representing more than 85% of the company's 2200 employees, including 800 highly skilled and certified male and female engineers working in various fields", Eng. Al-Musallam added.
Eng. Al-Musallam went on, saying: "AEC enjoys strong and strategic relationships with Saudi Aramco, which enabled the company to widen its horizons in the electronic industries, IoT and artificial intelligence. Both companies have previously succeeded in developing the "Data Diode" device, a locally-developed product that can easily be installed, configured, and maintained and provides utmost safety from cyber-attacks and external intrusions. Furthermore, this technology helps bolster the trust in the Kingdom's local capabilities."
On the other hand, AEC and Aramco recently entered into a partnership through the Industrial Digital Business (IDB) under the industrial investment program, Aramco Namaat, which aims to complement various digital hubs in Saudi Arabia, maximize local content, contribute to GDP growth, create new jobs, and accelerate digital talent development. To accelerate the digital ecosystem development in the Kingdom and support efforts to enable the IoT technologies, computing, communication, robotics, drones, and semiconductors that complement the expansion of the Kingdom's digital ecosystem, the partnership was established.
Established in 1988 and headquartered in Riyadh, AEC is a leader in the electronics, technology, and manufacturing industries. The company designs, develops, manufactures, maintains, and repairs advanced systems and products in the defense and aerospace, information and communications technology, security, and energy sectors.
